Hello! Thank you for your interest in checking out this fundraiser page!
Help me make an impact!
I have decided to take my passion internationally! I am volunteering through IVHQ on a mission to provide access to quality healthcare to the underserved and understaffed. My main goal is to gain medical experience to prepare for applying to physician assistant school. I will be based out of Antigua, Guatemala. However, my volunteer site will be in a rural town outside the city where there are disadvantaged, low-income communities. My trip is two weeks long. I would like to make it the best experience possible and really immerse myself in the Guatemalan culture.
I have chosen Guatemala as my site due to my ability to communicate in Spanish. Yet, would still love to practice my Spanish medical terminology, while I am there! Out of all the countries that IVHQ had to offer, I thought I would make the most powerful impact in Guatemala.
My entire in-country experience as an international volunteer is organized by knowledgeable local teams. Funding is going towards the local team and local community where I will be volunteering. It also provides me full access to a fully hosted volunteer experience.
I am volunteering through the IVHQ program because it gives back to the local community, as it is directly invested into locally-driven initiatives and long term employment opportunities for local people. It also feeds the Guatemalan economy to help those communities in need.
I greatly appreciate your time and donation.
All the best,
- Catherine Ortiz
